The C5 SB gives the best-selling Cordoba C5 a fresh spin and a whole new vibe. It’s got everything you love about the original C5, which has been a mainstay in the Iberia series for years, but adds the distinctly modern touch of a solid Sitka spruce top with sunburst finish. Mahogany back and sides and traditional Spanish fan bracing add to the warm, yet crisp tone of this contemporary take. Additional features include rosewood binding, bridge, and fingerboard, an all wood inlaid rosette, and stylish gold and pearl tuning machines.

All Cordoba guitars come with  Savarez strings.


Available with a cutaway and electronics (C5-CE SB) or with a solid cedar top and natural finish (C5).
